Meet The Team

Every session at the Distillery School is led by one of our category experts, all of whom honed their skills over years working in the drinks trade. They’ll make sure you’re entertained with fascinating tales of booze, bootlegging and bravery while delving deep into the intricacies of your chosen spirit.

When not at the venue, he can often be found exploring nearby Borough Market in search of exotic ingredients and new flavours.
